Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse
The decision to entrust the care of an elderly or disabled family member to a nursing home or other long-term care facility is never easy. All too often, the assurances people are given and the standards of care they observe when making this decision turn out to be misleading.

If you know or strongly believe that mistreatment in a nursing home has caused serious injury or a wrongful death in Ohio, we want to know about it at The Skolnick Weiser Law Firm, LLC.

Legal Action Due To Bedsores, Falls, Medical Neglect And Other Mistreatment
Nursing home negligence comes in many forms. Sadly, some administrators place profits above the obligation to meet essential standards of care. Due to understaffing, inadequate training and supervision, outright wrongdoing and a range of other causes, elderly patients may be victimized by:
- Bedsores, also called decubitus ulcers, often caused by failure to reposition bedridden patients, as well as dehydration and malnutrition
- Nursing home falls resulting in fractured hips, head injuries and other injuries that should have been prevented by providing proper supervision and assistance when needed
- Failures to provide prompt medical attention when needed, serious medication errors and other acts of negligence that occur in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and hospitals
- A range of other actions, including direct physical abuse
